    Major Tom to Ground Control send me up another J.G. Jones cover, man. In fact, send me up a few dozen while youre at it. With one well-crafted image, Jones has made me forget some of the most lackluster and poorly-executed covers in all of comicdom. Read Full Review

    Countdown #23 was a very disappointing read. It seems that this title is suffering from a precipitous drop in terms of quality writing. I'm getting less and less interested in the upcoming Final Crisis now that it appears that it is going to be nothing more than a kill-fest where the writers can use the Multiverse to "blow shit up." At this point I have practically no expectations of getting a wonderfully constructed story out of the end of Countdown or the impending Final Crisis. Read Full Review

    IGN - Richard George Nov 21, 2007

    I don't know if Prime's arrival was supposed to mark a severe escalation in this series. I keep hearing about how everything is supposed to "speed up". Mxy's fate here is of little consequence to me since he doesn't seem to be too integral to whatever's coming next. Thus I am left with an issue that repeats the same themes as last week's, featuring a character that is absolutely dreadful. This series just can't catch a break even though it's clearly trying so hard to be important. Read Full Review

    Unless you want to read about Superman Prime crying for 22 pages straight, just avoid wasting money on this issue altogether. Read Full Review
